Sometimes it's just way too easy

Man with crossbow arrested while picking psychedelic mushrooms

MANATEE COUNTY - A 19-year-old Manatee County man was arrested Friday after he was found in a cow pasture collecting psychedelic mushrooms while carrying a crossbow, the
Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said.
Jeffery Moore and three others were spotted by a Manatee County Sheriff’s helicopter in a cow pasture in the 2400 block of 38th Avenue East. According to the sheriff’s report, Moore was seen lying face down in an attempt to conceal himself from the helicopter’s spotlight.

Moore was found holding a small crossbow and sling shot. He told deputies that the weapons were for protection in case the cows in the pasture came at him. Moore also told deputies that he was in the pasture collecting mushrooms for drug consumption.

Moore faces charges in the armed trespassing.
"He told deputies that the weapons were for protection in case the cows in the pasture came at him." Well, at least he came prepared.

I saw a Cops episode once where an officer actually drew his weapon in case the cow made a move on him.

I think we underestimate the domesticated ungulates.

i like the fact that he was going to use the slingshot first, as a deterrent, and THEN, only if he had to-- would he use the crossbow. Greasetruck has a new song.

The Justice Department just put a "freeze" on $30 million in online poker assets...not that that could impact anyone around here...

Nice use of "ungulates." Taxonomy rocks.

Um...the Nats are still playing the Reds right now, and no lie, there are 35 people left in the stadium.

TJ said...

This is fun...not Cuse 6 OT fun...but Dibble is involved, so fun.

TJ said...

It seriously appears like the Nats and Reds ignored the Moose outside and decided to play extras in front of Candy and his security crew...
